Ronde van Zeeland Seaports is a single-day road bicycle race held annually in Zeeland, Netherlands. The race was created in 2012, as a 1.1 race on the UCI Europe Tour, after financial issues curtailed the Delta Tour Zeeland stage-race, which had been held since 2008. The first race was won by South African rider Reinardt Janse van Rensburg of the MTN–Qhubeka team.[1]

The first three editions of the race were held in June, but for the 2015 edition, the race was moved to March.[2] After 2015, the race was no longer held, but in 2017 was replaced with its spiritual successor, the Tacx Pro Classic.[3]
